Memory Box Wintry Christmas cards…

Two fun & festive cards to share with you today!  I love the ‘wintry’ feel of both of them! Freezin’ season!   hehe

I made a watercolor background with Distress Ink refills…Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. Spattered on some water and Sparkle Shimmer Spray.

I die cut the Simple Evergreen Frame, Cascade Evergreen Frame, Mountain Evergreen in white card-stock and Home for the Holidays in metallic gold card-stock and glued them, with liquid glue to the card-base in that order.  I checked the frame dies to make sure they were still available but didn’t check the Mountain Evergreen die. ugh.  So I’m linking you to the Marvelous Pine die in the links below.  I think it will be pretty on this card too!

After everything was glued on, I added some glitter domes. I link you to the large one I used on the bottom snowflake but I don’t have a source for the small ones anymore.  You could use small pearls and coat them with Nuvo Snowfall drops…linked them up below.

HLS November Christmas Challenge

CAS Watercolor Card Challenge – Holiday

I couldn’t resist making a Clean and Simple card with this Snowman Heart Collage die.  Sometimes clean makes such a wonderful statement! lol

I die cut the top panel with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die, then die cut the Snowman Heart Collage die in the panel.  I used 3M thin ¾ inch. mounting tape to mount this panel to my card-base after I wrapped it with a piece of kraft color twine.

I stamped the panel with a sentiment from the Believe in the Magic stamp set  using the MISTI!

The two little holly leaves are from the Holly Collage die. Die cut in white card, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and mounted to the panel with little pieces of mounting tape.

oh yes, the little heart is part of the Snowman Collage die too.  It comes with hat, scarf, carrot nose and buttons dies.

HLS November CAS Challenge – Christmas 

Well, that’s it for today… I have more to blog, it’s just been kinda crazy around here!  eek!  Yesterday the city cut down 3 of our trees in the parking…we live on a corner.  Our poor house feels naked.  Now to figure out new trees.  Found out this morning they have a list of approved trees.  Course what we wanted isn’t approved right now. Insert head banging person. It was so upsetting to see those trees go.  Our house is over 100 yrs old and new trees look so funny but we will plant the biggest ones we can afford!  To bad I can’t just put up paper trees! lol

Thanks for stopping by today! Here’s a link to listen to Christmas music on your computer! http://www1.cbn.com/radio/christmas  I’m enjoying it! Take care!

My cards for Simon Says Stamp ‘Making Spirits Bright’ Release!

Hello!  Did you hear the excitement in my hello?!  lol  ‘Making’ cards for Christmas gets me ALL excited and giddy with all the new product!  How to make and shop at the same time!  It is hard! lol

When this die arrived in the mail I was so happy this is what SSS sent me!  I love it!  In my first card, I combined it with the RyLynn Snowflake and a sentiment from Inside Holiday Greetings.

I got out some Distress Oxide ink pads and started smooshing.  It’s one of those come back after a layer dries and add another layer.  I just started another card while I was waiting!

I love these dies with the larger outline cut and the intricate word to layer in the outer cut.  I think you know what I mean… whew. lol  I’m not so great at describing things sometimes!  The Distress Oxide layer has the large ‘hole’ cut in it.  I die cut a piece of craft foam with the large die too and adhered it behind so the silver falala would be down in the hole.

I love how festive and non-traditional this turned out!

My next card…well, I love it too!  CAS, white and so sparkly festive!

American Crafts glitter paper…I like it!  It’s a really nice weight and die cuts perfectly!  Here I didn’t use craft foam behind the top layer but you still get enough dimension to show the beauty of the die.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Message Strips stamp set and poppystamps Holly Leaves and Berries dies are all the embellishment this card needed to keep it CAS.

I’m so excited for this release!  You can see all of it HERE at Simon Says Stamp.  What do you think?  I can’t wait to see it all myself! lol  I see some snowmen that need to come to my house!!!  and pine looking something back there!  eek!

Thanks so much for stopping by and listening to me go crazy over Christmas creating!  We are having so much fun, aren’t we stampers?!  I hope you are. If you want to swap Christmas cards, drop me an email! I love getting cards from stampers!

p.s. can’t wait to hear what you love from this release!

Colorful Rainbow cards to share today…

Hi everyone!  Two clean and simple cards I made for stamp club last Friday.  Annette had the program and she had rainbow for the theme.  These are the two cards I made…one to swap and one for Annette’s birthday card.

I used the poppystamps paintbrush die, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, a Taylored Expressions brush rubber stamp, You color my world is from a new poppystamps stamp set, inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped with the MISTI.  I stamped the brush stamp with Regular Distress Inks.  I centered the stamp on the lid of the MISTI and moved the card to stamp the different colors.  I did stamp each color two and three times to get the bold color.

Both cards are A2 top folding card bases, almost one layer!

The bike is a new Spellbinders die cut in heavy white card-stock…run it through with the tan mat a second time so it embosses nicely.

The street and the stitched rectangle are from a MFT blueprints die set, the butterflies are an old Marvy punch…sorry I didn’t have time to look for a die but I’ll see if I can find something similar to link to and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Thanks for stopping by on this fine Tuesday!  I’ll be back soon with more of you know what! lol  Have a creative, colorful week!

Memory Box Beautiful Chancery Snowflake dies..

Hello everyone!  I love die cutting like this! Remember my wreath card HERE?!  I think I need to make it up in Christmas colors too! lol

Such a pretty way to send a festive card!

Here’s what these dies look like cut normally…

I used the Outline to cut the white top panel and the turquoise glitter card-stock. I die cut the Chancery Snowflake in gold glitter card-stock and glued it on top of the turquoise outline die cut.

The top white panel is cut with the new Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die too…the largest one is 4 ¼ in. x 5 ½ in.  I used 3mm thick mounting strips that I made with 3 mm white foam and scor tape, cut into strips.

TIP:  If you own a MISTI, you can take the black foam out of it, put your card base in the bottom corner, then put your top panel on top.  Using the MISTI corner helps get that top panel lined up and on straight! yay!

I used the new Brush Merry Christmas die for the sentiment.  Die cut 2 times in white and the top layer in white glitter card-stock.  Glued together with Lineco liquid glue in the little Ultrafine glue bottles with the pins in the top.  So far I like them! Links below.

Some baby size turquoise gems and that’s it for this card! I want to think of some more things to do with this snowflake duo!

Two boy birthday cards…

Hi everyone!  How’s your end of Summer going? I keep getting sidetracked! lol  Trying to make more room here and there and clearing out stuff but really not ending up with that much more room!  Why?!  I think I’m pretty good at it! lol Oh well….I’ll keep trying.

And the other thing…how come if you use one scrap it seems like two more appear! lol

This is Corrin’s birthday card for this year… He turned 8 years old!  and yes, he is a cute blonde…that Summer bleached blonde funky hair cut kind of boy, concerned about the frogs etc. lol

I linked up to this stamp below but it’s discontinued…sorry about that but I have to use my stash too and I have to show you anyway cuz it’s a cute card! lol

I stamped him with Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out by hand but hey, I got a really good deal on a Scan n Cut 350 machine and I really like it you guys!!!  Shirley has been telling me about it and you know how we influence each other!!!  Thank you Shirley! lol  So next time, I’m cutting these bad boys and anything else I don’t have the dies for, with this new toy!  I cut out some digital images and the granddaughters cut out some hand drawn images with it.  Gena’s clouds were super cute!

Here’s a picture of the digital images I cut out with it…

ok – back to birthday cards…

This is Henry’s birthday card for this year…he turned 11!!!  Doesn’t seem possible!  He loves games! He’s great driving the gator around too, mowing the lawn and loves to read.

Shoot me now! lol  This is another die set that is discontinued and so is the stamp set. boo.  The die set is called Game Controller and the stamp set is called Level Up, both by My Favorite Things…so don’t be mad at me! lol

I saw a card made up when I googled the stamp name,  I loved it so I made it very similar to Elaine’s!  Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!

Both boys liked their cards!  yay!  June and July are both big birthday months for our family…September we have 3 so a few weeks break from birthday cards!

Although, I made a card, copied myself, that a friend requested for her aunt’s 90th birthday.  She started dairy farming when she was 50 yrs old!  Click on over to my Instagram to see a super short video of it. I put the tractor on a wobble this time.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

Thanks so much for stopping by stamping friends!  I appreciate it so much!

I’m trying out the new LinkDeli links today…a trial to see if they will work on a wordpress.com blog….so click away! lol Pretty sure it won’t blow up! lol

Memory Box Candle Centerpiece CAS card…

The days are getting away from me again!  How are you? This is ‘take two’ for this card…the first one…well, it got trashed! lol  I used a couple more dies and pattern paper and yikes…back to CAS! haha

I love this combo of candle, pine and holly.  I die cut it in white…heat embossed the outline with gold embossing powder twice, then colored the pieces with Copic Sketch markers before I inlaid them back in.

To keep the pieces together, I piece them from the wrong side and use 3L thin mounting squares to hold them together.  I cut the squares into 3 strips and it really works quite well.  You could do this with any foam type mounting adhesive. I’ll have to take a picture of what it looks like next time I do it. Take for example, where the holly is coming off the side of the candle…great place to stick one and it holds the inner leaf to the outline of the candle and to the candle.

The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set HERE.   I just started using the Tim Holtz Stamp Press HERE….I like it a lot!  The die is called the Candle Centerpiece HERE and the strip of pattern paper is from Pebbles Merry Merry Collection, HERE.  (it’s from the strip on the bottom of the paper where one side has the name and the other side is complementary to the pattern, on the Holly Berries sheet)

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe
